SAS: A connection Server "Local" could not be established

From SAS Support, Nov 13 2017:

>>>   A connection Server "Local" could not be established

Probably just need to register sas.  

Here are the steps:

1. close EG, close SAS
2. click Start > then type:  cmd
3. you will see cmd.exe at the top of the window, then right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as Administrator
4. from the dos window type:  cd ..    then enter, then type again:  cd ..  then enter  ( that puts you at the c:  prompt)
5. then enter:  cd program files  
6. then enter: cd sashome
7. then enter: cd sasfoundation
8. then enter: cd 9.4  
9. then enter:  sas /regserver      (there is a space between 'sas'   and the forward slash)

no error should occur.

10. now, start EG and make sure you can connect to Local server and open data and run code/tasks, etc.
